Borrowed from someone over at Yahoo sports:
Noel Gallagher put it best
“Football needs players like him because most footballers are basically squares. He’s a total rock’n’roller. There’s a bit of Mario in all of us – well, maybe not Gary Neville – but the rest of us most definitely.” In what way? “Have you never wondered what it would be like to set off rockets in your house? Visit a women’s prison just for a nosy? Write off a supercar? Deal only in cash? Befriend the mafia? Mario lives life on the edge, so people like you don’t have to.”
CLueless as to who he is? This video is a quick introduction.
